FTC Pressured by Advocacy Group to Break Up Facebook

A campaign called Freedom from Facebook was recently formed by eight groups which are calling on the Federal Trade Commission to break up the tech giant into smaller companies.

Groups including Demand Progress, Citizens Against Monopoly, Content Creators Coalition, Jewish Voice for Peace, MoveOn, Mpower Change, Open Markets Institute, and SumOfUs implored the agency to separate Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp from its parent company.

Reports say the group has launched a six-figure ad campaign on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to promote their website.
